    Hi,


    congrats, that's a lot... but take care of your females, give them a rest and have an eye on calcium supply.

    Good luck!

    Congratulations. My females used to be sexually mature at the age of 6 months. females are really delicate de maintain because they are too prolific. Some specimen I had used to lay eggs every 5 days.

    you can't do anyting. My females used to lay sterile eggs at the age of 6 months...without any problem.

    I've also found something. generally, the babies have calcium troubles, even if you give them calcium everyday!!! I've noticed that baby picta ate a lot (about 10 insects each night!!!). I've tried to make food restrictions. I only gave them 3 insects every Two or three days. It was a succes. Of course, the grew far less rapidly but no calcium problem was noticed. So be careful and don't overfeed them, as they grow too quickly and can't fix calcium on their bones.
